Organising the Hen Night
When it comes to the task of organising the hen night, thankfully, this is one task the Bride can take a back seat on. Traditionally, co-ordination of the event falls the way of the Chief Bridesmaid - this is not to say that the other bridesmaids can't chip in and help, or that the Bride herself should have no involvement whatsoever, but it usually is the Matron of Honour's responsibility to plan and organise the event from beginning to end.
Alongside the more obvious tasks of what to do and where to go, there are four key tasks to sort out before anything else:
When should we hold the event?
How long should the whole thing last?
Who do we to invite?
What's the budget?
For some, all of this may be both easy and obvious, but for others short on hen night ideas who need help with the event organising, be sure to check out our hen party planning article for some great tips and tricks.
In modern times, with so many options on the table, it's unlikely you'll be struggling for hen night ideas on the activities front. Gone are the days when a hen party meant a solely a relaxing get-together over a bottle of wine - nowadays anything from bungee jumping to pamper days, clubbing weekends to pole dancing lessons are possible, and readily available.
Much of course will depend on budget and event duration. If it's literally a one-nighter after work and everyone who's attending is currently seeking employment, then cramming sphering, karting, massages, boozing and strippers in is both unlikely and unfeasible. However, for hen weekends or even weeks away where there's a little more cash to splash, then it would be a waste to simply head out on the town each night and lounge around in front of the TV by day.
